disappointing Nicky's Banh mi

charliebaltimore | Sep 2, 2005 02:43 PM

My maiden voyage to Nicky's today was disappointing. The bread was tasty and fresh, but barely HALF the size of a standard sandwich roll. I got the classic banh mi- the pork filling was not spicy or crispy, the mustard was cloying, the vegtable marinade was not sharp or refreshing. It was acceptable- but after hearing and reading the raves it was disappointing. I will remain true to Saigon Banh Mi- it is a dollar cheaper $3.00 and TWICE the size and I guess I'll just bear down and ride out the long wait.
